The track is comprised of several obstacles which simulate some of the rigorous testing that Jeep vehicles endure like rugged terrain, traversing fallen logs measuring 15-inches in diameter, and a 30-degree wedge to demonstrate the vehicle's unchallenged articulation. There will be a 24' climbing wall and Kids Course with kid-sized Jeeps for the younger fans to participate in the fun. Featured vehicles in the display are the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, Compass and Patriot.
